Neutralize Threat Mission for Multiplayer?

#1BlackSpyro_33Posted 12/2/2012 1:15:47 PM
Sure, we have the "take out 4 targets" mission, but it's too goddamn easy. I was thinking of something around the grounds of actually introducing big bad Bosses the whole team has to focus fire on in order to take down. Even Missiles would deal reduced damage to them. While the Threat is around, only base enemies would spawn (like Husks and Troopers).

Was playing around in Single Player and kept hearing: "Incoming Harvester!", and then I thought about hearing that from the multiplayer Pilot and rushing to kick its ass.

Since Geth and Cerberus are indoctrinated and Collectors and Reapers are- well integrated into their own faction, I believe having a Harvester show up anywhere would be cool.

But then it'd get a little complicated with a few enclosed areas like Reactor or Glacier, but I'm sure they could work around a ceiling buster animation or something. XD

So why not? :D

I present to you: The Gethscythe

Standing at 20 yards tall, 16 in palladium plating fully automatic dual grenade launchers incorporating onto the shoulder pads, aerial auto-missile lock-on, and if all else fails, a sexy ass scythe for sweeping out enemies and last but not least vibrating cup-holders


as for collectors i'm sure they could create a new enemy, basically a giant version of the scion except it isn't slow as hell and has alternate attacks for close and long range

No reason for a ceiling buster on Glacier. That'd be a huge amount of work. There's enough room that a Harvester could fly around the hanger room. Reactor (and Hazard) would need a script that prevents that objective from occurring.
Cerberus could use Gunships (Remember ME2 Archangel/Kasumi missions?)
Geth could have Armatures and hoppers.

I order you to cease any and all supernatural activity and return forthwith to your place of origin, or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.

I likes. Maybe with enough support this could become a reality. :D

Mayb the threat differs depending on which map you're playing? For instance, I can see it being a Thresher Maw on Giant a Colossus on Hydra and possibly an Oculus on Glacier or more confined areas.

Reapers: harvester
Geth: Colossus (and colossi would be the proper plural form)
Cerberus: the gunship sounds like a good idea
Collectors: unless it's also the harvester, I'm at a loss. We already have praetorians, and we can't very well have a wandering proto-reaper popping in.

And we don't need any special animation for them to appear. We already have atlas's magically popping out of thin air, if you're standing in view of a spawn point (whereas in SP, they squeeze through a door, or drop from the sky). I see no reason why these super-bosses can't spawn in like any other enemy.

Though the gunship on Reactor would be a problem. And the only way it would be a threat on Glacier is if you're out in the open on the loading dock. On second thought, maybe the Cerberus super-boss needs a little more thought.

Map specific. That would work. And what if whatever it was also attacked enemies? All enemies spawn infinitely on objective waves anyway, so it certainly wouldn't take anything away.

I think having map specific enemies would work better than having specific types for each faction. As big as a Harvester is, I can see it having a lot of problems moving around on maps like reactor or glacier, same with a Colossus.

I would definitely be down with a Thresher Maw showing up somehow on Tuchanka, or a Harvester dropping in to London or Condor, or a Colossus showing up on a map like Hydra though. Just give them insane amounts of health especially a Colossus because that thing is pretty much a sitting duck.

We could easily have alternate threats for tight maps. I like this idea, I despise most objectives (especially when the drone disappears), but this might be fun.
